bringing ph down

I've been using vendors water to fill my tank but suddenly find myself unable to get the water home but i need to add water tomarrow all i have on hand to lower the tap water ph is black water expert which takes quite a while and since its been a long time i'd like to take an easier route. Could i use baking soda or vinegar?will it have any effects on my bio filter? My freshwater tank is 50g,ph is 7.2. i will need to add around 15 gallons of fresh water and my tap is 9.2. Any help for a quick one time fix? I 'd appreciate any help thanks, Tabbi

9.2?!?!? Yikes! With that high of water I would eventually look into getting a Reverse Osmosis system but thats a big investment ($200) and not a one time fix, but with how high your water is you might look into getting it anyways and completely do away with having to pick up your water from a vendor(just the money in gas alone would be worth it)

witha 9.2 I'd look into my water source, if it's a provider make them install an RO system for free!

Because you can't starve us out and you can't make us run, Cause we'se them ole boys raised on shotguns.
